We have over 50 volunteers at the museum who contribute over 10,000 hours to the museum every year. Here are some of the many ways you can be part of this.
Meeting and greeting our visitors is our most popular role. As well as taking admissions you will help our visitors enjoy their visit explaining what we have on offer.
Supporting the Learning or Engagement Teams
The museum offers an extensive programme of events, activities and learning opportunities which enhance our current exhibitions and animate our collections. Volunteers in our Learning and Engagement teams are involved in facilitating a wide range of creative workshops and activities with all age groups. This can range from supporting visiting schools to helping at family, adult and outreach events.
Behind the Scenes
A small number of volunteers work to provide important support in a number of behind-the-scenes roles. These include: working with our collections, marketing and promotions, social media and website updating.
Is volunteering for me?
Volunteering at the museum is a great way to meet new people. There are regular occasions for volunteers to meet socially, as well as plenty of opportunities to try new things.
Don’t worry if you don’t have any previous experience of volunteering; we are keen to hear from volunteers who can bring their own experiences and skills to the role.
